• The Divination Network of Tarot

    Tarot is a deck of cards used since the 15th century to play various games as well as for divination purposes. We at Nodus Labs studied the structure of various Tarot decks, treating the cards as the nodes and relations between them as edges, building a graph of relations between the cards that are invariant across various Tarot decks. We discovered that the structure of the resulting graph has a very specific community structure, which makes Tarot a very efficient tool for telling narratives. We are currently working on practical implementations of this study.

  • 27/06/2013 / Using the Framework of Networks to Enhance Learning and Social Interactions

    This session was presented at ComplexNetworks Laboratoire d’Informatique de Paris VI University. We focused on demonstrating the benefits of merging scientific research, social experiments and artistic practice in order to let ideas across the different fields mix and stimulate new social behaviors and produce interesting research questions to explore. In this talk we outlined the general approach and research questions currently relevant to us at Nodus Labs and presented the research, case studies, and tools that were created as a result of this approach at our organization.

  • Embodying Social Networks Workshop

    Networks are everywhere and yet it’s still a very abstract concept. Together with our colleagues from Transnomia Institute we put together a special workshop that offers a very tangible experience of networks to the participants. As a result, they get intuitive and embodied knowledge of various network structures and learn to extend their social skills beyond the common patterns and codes of behavior.

  • Polysingularity within Socio-Cognitive Networks

    Polysingularity is a practice of maintaining several dynamic singularities at once. Within social context this implies the existence of several communities, which are segregated enough to operate independently from one another, but are sufficiently integrated in order to be able to synchronize on the global level.  Together with specialists from Transnomia Institute we developed a social experiment that allows participants to experience polysingularity in a protected social setting.
